It's amazing how many times we utter this phrase and in how many ways we use it. Think about it, sports, relationships, things that look miraculous, prices in the super market, or maybe about a son or daughter who have used us all up in their addictive behavior. Or maybe somebody said that about us - no way!
Truth is there is always a way. Think of all the miraculous results in sports, Russia vs. USA in the Olympics they call The Miracle on Ice, the longshot that wins the Kentucky Derby, the 2021 Braves winning the World Series and sad to admit the 28-3 Super Bowl our Falcons lost. No Way! Of course there is always Cinderella, Snow White, Peter Pan or any Rocky movie you want to pick. Or how can eggs go so high then get so low? No Way!
Or how can someone die on a cross and come back to life? How can we live and not be affected by that event? There's just no way that can happen right? A couple thousand years later and thousands of pieces of evidence as well say that he made a way when there was no way.
Faith does not have limits though in our humanity we become impatient with it. Here's a couple things to think about: God is a Waymaker (Isaiah 43:15-16), he's a Miracle Worker (Psalm 77:14), and he's a Promise Keeper (2 Corinthians 1:20). And he is the way, the truth and the light in the darkness that brings a ray of hope into all hopeless situations. Faith in him has no limit and no end, and in each situation it is just beginning.
Just a little inspiration entering a weekend that may have impossibility written all over it, especially when someone says that about you. Come to think of it, they said it about me and ATB when we went out on our own.
When no way became His Way, he always makes a way!
